Berk-Tek's tight buffered indoor/outdoor plenum interlock armored cables are designed for installation in plenum and horizontal environments, and interbuilding backbone structures.
This design incorporates tight buffered optical fibers within a dry water blocked core cable. Interlock armor and an outer jacket are added over the cable core. Suitable for operation across wide temperature variations typically addressed by outside plant cables. No Buffer Tube Fanout kits are required. Direct termination is enabled.
Each cable utilizes our DryGel water blocking system in the core cable. Cable design can accommodate from 6-144 tight buffered (900 µm) fibers. A glass reinforced (GRP) anti-buckling member is centrally located within the 24 fiber cable design, and is used as a central strength member for fiber counts from 36 to 144 that feature 12 fiber subunits.
OFCP Rated. Available with aluminum interlock armor, covered by a plenum rated jacket.
These water-blocked cables feature fungus resistant jacketing, and are sunlight resistant per UL 444 clause 7.22.
For use in conduit, below the frost line.
Loose Tube cables are recommended if interbuilding conduit systems lie above the frost line and are likely to fill with water.
- Tight Buffer fiber cables are not suitible for aerial-lashed installations.
